Server 9 is over, with Babuk finishing as the winning World Wonder.
But the real story may be that he switched alliances at level 99, from TRUST to Rangers. And many players are shocked that this has happened (I know I am, though I’m going to try to get the full story before I rush to judgement).
Here’s the final standings:
Note that Babuk joined Rangers on the last day of the Server, and that the alliance was specifically renamed Rangers on the last day as well (previously it was called “Tonto.” So this was definitely a deliberate act to put the name “Rangers” as the winning alliance at the top of the rankings as the game ends. Before the World Wonder race, Babuk was in Tonto for his entire playing time of the game (it was originally called KISSNW7).
Here’s a shot of their closing alliance screen. Babuk is listed as “The Winner”. They are listed as being confederated with several, but not all, of alliances in TRUST.
Stay tuned for more Server 9 reaction and coverage!
